THE PLOOMAN LAD (Downeast) (The Plooman Lad's for me)
by Julia Lane

Sae briskly every winter
Tae the road he does repair
When north winds blaw and freeze our toes
And snowflakes fill the air
All mounted high in his fourwheel drive
Wi’ the lichts gaein’ roon’ an’ roon’
I dropped my jaw when first I saw
The lad that drives the ploo’

It’s the plooman lad for me
For he keeps my driveway free
All winter long I’ll sing this song
“It’s the Plooman Lad for me”

Well I’m just a country supermom
And my driveway it is long
So I hire the man who drives the plow
For his truck is so braw and strong
When it snows all night, before daylight
I know he’ll be aroon’
With his GMC he keeps me free
The lad that drives the ploo’

Even when it snows all afternoon
I’ll never have a care
When there’s lots of snow he goes real slow-
It’s then he’ll use first gear
He plows me up , he plows me doon
He plows me aroon an’ roon’
It’s my delight when he plows all night
The lad that drives the ploo’
